Ten: The number of unbeaten league matches against Burnley. See also the number of Europa League points the Gunners have earned in qualifying for the knockout stages

Eight: The number of league games won. The same as Chelsea

Seven: The number of wins Spurs have in the league. As our guest columnist Ella Meadowcroft wrote after the 2-0 victory over the Lillywhites. ‘Power shift? North London remains very much red...’
